|ERIC ED354776: An Ethnomathematics Approach to Teaching Language Minority Students. - ERIC|
An ethnomathematics approach to the curriculum is advocated as a means of addressing the problems faced by limited English proficient (LEP) students who experience difficulties in learning mathematics. It is noted that the problems may have little to do with difficulties in processing mathematical ideas. When LEP students are from different cultures, speak languages other than English as their primary language, and have preferred differences in cognitive processing, the typical approach to organ...

|ERIC ED260904: Spatial Cues in Algebraic Syntax. - ERIC|
Language syntax is discussed, followed by an overview of algbraic syntax. Evaluating algebraic expressions was chosen as the means to investigate the psychological basis of syntactic skills. Subjects' ability to perform evaluative tasks appropriately using standard algebraic notation was ascertained; then similar tasks were presented using a nonce, or artificial, notation designed to display the propositional or deep structure character of algebraic expressions while distorting the surface cues ...

|ERIC ED306098: Translation of Algebraic Equations and Its Relation to Formal Operational Reasoning. - ERIC|
A large proportion of college students majoring in science are unable to translate even simple sentences into algebraic equations. Given the following sentence, "There are six times as many students (S) as professors (P) at this university," 37% of 150 freshmen engineering students in a study conducted in 1981 by Clement, Lockhead, and Monk wrote the following equation: 6S=P, referred to as the reversal error...

|ERIC ED335223: Semiotics in the College Mathematics Classroom. - ERIC|
Although mathematics can be described as a formalized language, the signs and symbols of mathematical representation are subject to individual interpretation, which, if inaccurate, can lead to inhibitions about and interferences with the mathematical learning process. The purpose of this study was to explore communication in an intermediate-level college discrete mathematics classroom and to elucidate possible differences in interpretation that could detract from the attainment of an accurate sh...

|ERIC ED335215: A Model for Inferring Components of Belief Systems by Interpreting the Content and Context Cues Used by Students to Situate Mathematical Tasks. - ERIC|
Confrontation with a mathematical task causes a student to focus initial attention upon particular content and context cues based upon that student's belief system; the student assigns subsequent meaning to that task based upon previous mathematical experience and knowledge. In order to make effective use of students' belief systems, educators need delineations both of the components of those systems and of the interactions of those systems with students' cognition...

|Spanish Morpho-syntax ~ A Lexical Categorical Approach (Doctoral Dissertation, 1990) ~ by Rafael Andres Escribano - Dr. Rafael Andres Escribano|
In this dissertation, I develop a linguistic mathematical model for a proper subset of the basic morpho-syntax of Spanish using the lexical-categorical approach originally developed by Professor Michael K. Brame (1944 - 2010). This approach considers prime and composite morphemes to be objects that are dynamic and charged, as functors with information about themselves and about that part of themselves constituted by their arguments. In particular, I show, by construction, how it is possible wi...
